E-State Random Static

News blurbs from Vermont Public Radio.
G-20. Vermont is receiving 720 million of stimulus money. Direct bureaucratic D.C. control over town spending . Towns are required to put up money on top of it. Local IBM leasing space to a company called ASK-in TAG LLC, which is developing RFID tags for who-knows-what purpose. 7 Billion is being spent on the "Broadband Roll Out". Vermont wants to be a totally wired, an E-State. Health , education, everything all connected-for the ease of it, of course.
At the same time this bureaucratic and high tech world rises, the world around us is slowly being shifted into a new scheme and the old crap falls away.

The push to compact cities, consolidate and robotize the population is real.
There is a big push for wind and hydro power in Vermont as well and around the world as part of the Green Revolution Scam.

"He saw he had come out upon the roof of the vast city structure which had replaced the miscellaneous houses, streets and open spaces of Victorian London. The place upon which he stood was level, with huge serpentine cables lying athwart it in every direction. The circular wheels of a number of windmills loomed indistinct and gigantic through the darkness and snowfall, and roared with a varying loudness as the fitful white light smote up from below, touched the snow eddies with a transient glitter, and made an evanescent spectre in the night; and here and there, low down! some vaguely outlined wind-driven mechanism flickered with livid sparks." -H.G. Wells from When the Sleeper Wakes.


In the BBC production of The Tripods, humans are "capped" around age 14. Kids are given a triangular, metallic cap is placed on the skull making them subservient to the "Masters". A select few work for the Tripods in their cities built over rivers. Uncapped humans infiltrate the city.
The protagonist Will Parker is eventually questioned by a being, controlling the Masters, with no apparent body. Few Masters are allowed to ever converse with this eminence.

Mark Mothersbaugh, frontman of the rock group Devo makes a number of gestures that seem related to masonry or some other related esoteric initiation rite, Here.
Gerry Casale, Devo's bassist has an interesting tale to tell. Listen to this recent interview.
